A Three Hour Tour!


Welcome Aboard!

This was shot in the morning hours in Queenstown, New Zealand. Queenstown reminded us of Vancouver, British Columbia. OK, this is not the Tour Ship…the Owner uses this to shuttle Folks to his amazing Yacht. We just loved the sign!

A resort town, Queenstown is a centre for adventure tourism Skiing, Jet Boating, Whitewater Rafting, Bungy Jumping and Mountain Biking as well as Fly Fishing are all strong promotional themes.

Queenstown is a major centre for snow sports in New Zealand, with people from all over the country and many parts of the world travelling to ski at the four main mountain Ski Fields. Cross country skiing is also available at the Waiorau Snow Farm, located near the village of Cardrona.

In recent years, Queenstown’s hostels have become a popular destination for tourists from all over the world. Queenstown provides adventure tourism during the day and a vibrant nightlife scene during the evenings. Queenstown is also gaining popularity as a honeymoon destination.

Locally, Queenstown has a reputation as one of New Zealand’s wine and cuisine centres. Neighbouring, historic Arrowtown also features excellent restaurants and bars, and Queenstown lies close to the centre of a small wine-producing region, reputed to be the world’s southernmost. Pinot Noir produced in this area fetches premium prices.
